In-Vitro Fertilization : The Pioneers' History Hardback
The birth of Louise Joy Brown - the world's first baby born following in-vitro fertilization - heralded a medical revolution.
Forty years later, many thousands of babies are born each year following IVF.
Assisted reproduction is a global industry with a multi-billion dollar turnover.
It is a complex mix of science, clinical management, bioethics, and commercial imperatives.
Many of the pioneers of IVF are still with us and have a fascinating tale to tell.
Here, they relate the story of the development of IVF and related technologies in a way that will prove invaluable to future generations of practitioners seeking to understand the genesis of the specialty.
This is not an academic history: rather it takes an informal and anecdotal approach; informing and entertaining for generations of past, present and future medical and scientific specialists of IVF, alongside the millions of parents, who celebrated the successes of IVF treatment worldwide.
